I can’t explain to you how happy I am to finally feel good again! Gosh what a relief! I really hate when I’m so out of breath and tired! I don’t know what I had, probably a lung attack that I wasn’t listening to, but it’s over and I’m feeling fine again!
Today my blogger friend Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood celebrates her birthday! Happy Birthday dear Ada! Why not visit her blog and congratulate her!
Feeling good means doing a lot!
On Monday I did a lot! The usual, the laundry, blogging and working out and in the evening I had a Teams meeting. And I wasn’t tired at the end of the day! Yeah, that makes me feel so good! Tuesday was King’s Day in the Netherlands, it was our King’s birthday, most people have a day off and there is normally plenty to do throughout the country, like festivals and fairs. Now, and last year too, there was of course nothing to do. Only the Royal family on the telly visiting a town in the Netherlands.
Gerben and I went to my father and his wife by bicycle. They had their first vaccination and we had not seen them in months. So very nice to see them and have a chat. When we got home Gerben lit the BBQ and I had squid and Gerben had veal. We were able to eat outside just before the sun disappeared and it just got cold again.
Heading to the weekend
What is that with me and companies lately! Now I have two packages that do not arrive. One that I bought, pre loved and one that I sent back to h&m. By the way, h&m has a excellent service regarding lost packages! Does that happen to me alone or what is that! Two more weeks and then we have a holiday, can’t wait! I am so ready for it! Update, the battery for my wheelchair will arrive this week, as they tell me….
Friday was not a cleaning day for me for a change. That made me feel good! As if I had a day off! I had an appointment with the nail stylist in the morning. If you are wondering whether my house will not be cleaned, I have divided it over the other days! What did you think! Lol. After the nail stylist I went to the pet store to get some toys and treats. Quite exciting because I had not been to a store for 4,5 months. Then I went to the bakery and bought delicious sandwiches for lunch and pastries for coffee in the evening! (how thrilling is my life….)
Saturday morning working out, with Saturday Kitchen Live on the telly, and ironed, yuck. Sunday we went cycling for an hour and a half, but gosh what a cold wind! But also nice! Let the fresh breeze blow through your head. Gerben cooked dinner, that’s such a treat! I think Peaky Blinders is over I guess, Broadchurch is interesting again! I find it so relaxing to watch a good series on television! Nice end to a great weekend!
Did you read last Sunday’s post! You can join us, we would love it if you would! And you can share your outfits of Instagram with the hashtag #nancysfashionstyle. Every Friday night I will be featuring the best looks on Instagram at Fancy Friday Night! Hope you like to join that too!
Enjoyed reading Nancy. The bike ride looks heavenly xx
It was, but very cold!
I do a bit of cleaning each day; just a couple of rooms each day so that by Friday hopefully the whole house has been cleaned. It’s a bit frustrating in that by the time I finish I feel like the rooms I started with need another cleaning BUT I can’t imagine trying to clean the whole house in one day. I used to do that when my boys were little and it was a big job as we have a rather large house. I am rather dismayed to realize that I had no idea the Netherlands had a King!
Haha, yes we do and a Queen! We don’t have a huge house, it has three bedrooms. But I only clean and don’t hoover, that does Gerben every day. And we are just with the two of us!
Thank goodness you are feeling better! Your Friday outfit is my favorite, I know you don’t love jeans but you look great in them!
Haha, thanks! I feel very good in this one though!
Yay for good days and beautiful weather! So many great outfits this week too.
Phew, I am relieved to read that you are feeling so much better. It must have been quite worrying!
Yay for BBQ weather too – although it is still quite chilly, and today has been horrendous.
I haven’t been much in a cleaning mood lately, but it has to be done. When I was working full-time, Jos did most of it, but as he absolutely hates cleaning, he was glad to hand over a big chunk to me now that I’m at home more.
Your bike ride looks lovely, with all the yellow flowers along the cycle path!
What series of Broadchurch are you watching? I kind of lost sight of it after series 1 and 2. xxx
I think I am watching season 2. Where Joe’s trial is going on and the Sandbrook case is on. It’s on BBCFirst on Sunday night!
I am SO happy to hear that you are feeling better!! I also love your Saturday outfit and those yellow flowers are beautiful!
First of all, I am glad you are feeling much better. You look great in that Wintery outfit with the khaki trench coat. It’s a great outfit though I am craving only warm weather clothes right now. YEAY for meeting your in-laws by bicycle and yeay for a trip to the stores and for hat visit to the bakery. Loved catching up with you. =)
Thank you so much for joining my 9th annual Blog Birthday Party and for virtually celebrating with me today. YESSS TO AMAZING BLOGGING FRIENDSHIPS!! We have been good blogging friends for several years now.
Welcome by and check my special post today, too. =)
Oh Ada , you are such a sweet lady! I wish you the most fabulous birthday party!
I’m so glad you’re feeling better Nancy. I love that you were able to eat outside…we LOVE to do that.
Yes we too! We even eat outside when it is not that warm!
Your weekend outfits are so good here, Nancy, and I am very glad to hear you are feeling better!
I hope you are having a great week so far!

Thank you very much Amber!
This outfits look amazing on you Nancy. Just fabulous. Mooi. And your pictures are delightful. Missing the Netherlands a lot so really happy about pics. And not quite sure but have you been vaccinated yet? Well, if so, then congratulations. My husband is going to get hos jab next Saturday.
And you also love squid? Me too. xo Happy week. xo Sabina
Oh yes, I love all seafood! No I haven’t been vaccinated yet, I even haven’t got my invitation!
I am happy to hear you’re feeling better. I know what it is like to live with a chronic illness. We have our bad and our good days. Listening to our body is very important.
I love your Saturday outfit. The pleated skirt looks great worn with the sneakers. You look fantastic!!!
Oh thank you! Yes it is important, but also very hard to do!
I’m glad that you are feeling good now! You did a lot of things these days! Wish that you will relax as you deserved during the holidays. Regarding the H&M packages, it’s so weird that they lost them! It’s never happened to me. Hope they will solve this problem. Send you a big hug!
Thank you very much! Well DHL lost them, but h&m solved it!
So glad you are feeling good! Looking lovely in that pleated skirt and the outfit with the trench! No layers here anymore but that means we can enjoy the outdoors more. I just need to remember a hat and sunscreen! Husband will be griling this weekend. Yum.
Oh that’s wonderful. We had it planned too, but it will be warm enough, but wet!
Glad to hear you are feeling better, Nancy. It just takes one little thing to throw us off balance, doesn’t it? Love your Saturday outfit! Such a pretty skirt!
Thanks Sheila, I received another one today! A black one!! Yeah!
Nancy, I am so glad that you have recovered fully from feeling so unwell. I love both your Friday and Saturday outfits. Your camel trench coat is beautiful! And such a great color on you, too. Veal and squid made at home sounds amazing! I don’t think I have ever tried to prepare either of those things at home. I have only ever had them in restaurants. I may have to look into this!
Squid is really easy and fast! And with homemade pesto it’s so delicious! Try it! Put Jeff at the BBQ!
